Bon Appétit Magazine Bestows Tastemaker Award
September 2008Fish taste best when they're selected with an eye toward sustainability. That's the conclusion of Bon Appétit Magazine, which names the Monterey Bay Aquarium as its "Tastemaker of the Year," recognizing the Aquarium's Seafood Watch program for its influential role in transforming seafood buying habits across the U.S.
The magazine selects the Aquarium for its work in communicating the message of sustainable seafood at a time when many commercial fisheries are collapsing or in decline around the world. The award is featured in the magazine, on its website and at an awards ceremony in New York City.
